Clean passages or blazing leads – the expressive dynamics and headroom of Duality 7 deliver a neck tone that is uniquely suited to 7-string guitars.
7-string players know that balancing clarity and depth are critical to making the most of the extended range of their instrument. Duality’s voicing is derived from traditional magnet coils and an Alnico magnet, just like our passive humbuckers, for sweet sustain and rich harmonics – and is paired with an active preamp designed to emphasize and enhance those natural qualities while also delivering the headroom and power actives are known for.
The result is a pickup with strong midrange, punchy and articulate lows and a three-dimensional high end. Powerful and tight enough for metal but open and clear enough for prog, fusion and rock. Chords take on new levels of chunk, and single-note runs are fluid and airy. And unlike traditional active pickups, Duality cleans up nicely and responds to your picking dynamics naturally – meaning it feels as good to play as it sounds.
With the classic good looks and responsive tone of a passive humbucker, and the headroom, clarity and power of an active, Duality™ truly is the best of both worlds.
Duality is made in Santa Barbara, California. Available in 7-string as a set, or individual neck or bridge.
